This book examines Cervantes' participation in the ongoing aesthetic debates and conflicts that preoccupied both the writer and the visual artist of the Renaissance. At the forefront were explorations on the impossible representation of beauty, the propagandistic usage of art, and the theological associations of the image. Reflections on these topics are engrained in Cervantes' work and ultimately denote the multifarious dimensions of the image in the world of the 1500s.
